The University of Alaska Anchorage recently received notice from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) that UAA's accreditation was reaffirmed on the basis of the Fall 2010 Year Seven Evaluation.
The Commission commended UAA for its willingness to serve as a pilot institution for the new NWCCU standards and processes. NWCCU found UAA noteworthy for its broad, transparent and inclusive planning process, and for the manner in which it has created forward momentum in the institution.
In addition, the Commission applauds the institution for the camaraderie, mutual respect, culture of caring, and sense of community among and within its campuses, which reflect positively on its staff, faculty and administration. Lastly, the Commission commended UAA's staff, faculty, administration and external institutional advisory committee members for embracing and integrating the Public Square theme into the campus culture, thus providing research in the public interest, public access to University resources and facilities and mutual benefit to the campuses and their communities.
